Started in the December month in the Wuhan region of China, the coronavirus spread has taken a severe form in today’s time. Earlier, it came into the news as an ‘outbreak’ then it was declared ‘epidemic’ by the World Health Organization. Due to the widespread of this deadly virus, the WHO has declared it a ‘pandemic’. A lot of online shops have been selling N95 masks in order to make available the best possible products to keep themselves safe.
Although medical experts have only recommended the global travelers and daily commuters to wear a mask when they go in public, other categories of people are also ordering it for daily use. As coronavirus spreads due to the release of droplets from the mouth of an infected person, it is being highly recommended by medical experts to cover the face with a coronavirus Protection Mask.
